ICT Report (11/17/09): Presidents Obama and Hu discuss Tibet at their first summit: Presidents Obama and Hu have released a joint statement at the US-China summit in Beijing that indicates they discussed a resolution for Tibet, human rights and religious freedom. In the joint statement, President Obama said, "I spoke to President Hu about America's bedrock beliefs that all men and women possess certain fundamental human rights … We did note that while we recognize that Tibet is part of the People's Republic of China the United States supports the early resumption of dialogue between the Chinese government and the representatives of the Dalai Lama to resolve any concerns and differences that the two sides may have." President Hu said, "The two sides reaffirmed the fundamental principle of respecting each other's sovereignty and territorial integrity... We will continue to act in the spirit of equality, mutual respect and non-interference in each other's internal affairs, and engage in dialogue and exchanges on such issues as human rights and religion in order to enhance understanding, reduce differences and build common ground."
